Miss World 2013 Megan Young: “I’m Against Abortion,” and “Sex is for Marriage”

Megan Lynne Young, a 23-year-old Filipino American beauty queen recently won the Miss World Philippines title and was later crowned as Miss World 2013 in Bali, Indonesia.

She is the first Filipina to win the title of Miss World but she also has another claim to fame: she is pro-life.

“I’m against abortion,” she says in a new interview. “I’m pro-life and if it means killing someone who’s already there, then I’m against that, of course. My beliefs are, no abortion.”

“Sex is for marriage, that is my belief,” she adds ...

Chris, the Bible word for saved people (i.e. the church) is "saint". Another word is "believer". Another one is "elect of God".

So a born again Christian is a saint, and all saints are born again believers.

This has nothing to do with the wretched RCC usage of beatification, which is NOT biblical.

IMO, you're on the right track, Anne.

Light and darkness don't mix. Those who are born of the will of God and are filled with His Light will gravitate to the Light and away from darkness in all its enticing forms. Those who feel at home in the dark..... well, you know what I'm getting at.

God bless, sister and thanks for all your contributions to the forum.

Thanks, John. I've seen the link before but I guess I need to order some.

So how do we discern the professors of Christ from the real Christians?
Hello bro, God bless the Lurker!

I've put this up before, but it is such an excellent booklet by Peter Masters of the Met Tab, that I do not hesitate to link it again for the benefit of anyone who wants a biblical perspective on the evidence of true conversion.

It is helpful in so many ways, even to giving biblical assurance of salvation to those who are uncertain.

SEVEN CERTAIN SIGNS

"Are there recognisable signs that true conversion has occurred? How can seekers tell if God has worked in their hearts? How can Christian workers discern the spiritual standing of a seeker or inquirer, or an applicant for baptism and church membership? A guide to the marks of true salvation."

I heartily recommend this booklet - it can be revolutionary in a person's life, as it reveals a pseudo-conversion as well as a genuine one.

Are there any absolutes by which we can measure whom we align ourselves?
I've been following your comments/questions as they pertain to Steve's agreement with John Y (one can't rightly judge someone non-Christian just because they are Catholic).

First you must understand that Steve believes there are "millions" of born again Christians at home and in good standing with God within the RCC machine. Hence, he confirms John Y. in his dilusion and condemns anyone who questions his salvation. Interestingly, Steve has never explained how these "millions" of so called born again believers saw the Light while abiding in darkness but that's another story.

So how do we discern the professors of Christ from the real Christians? I don't think there is a sure fire litmus test as some would propose. Fruit inspection doesn't do it for me because there are many imatators of Christian righteousness but they are animated by the flesh, not the Holy Spirit.

Professions don't get it either because nost anyone can quote a few silver bullets of scripture.

What does work for me is getting to know someone over a period of time and finding out if their beliefs consistently match up with the bible and if they live their lives as they profess.

I dont attend a RCC Church, but the LORD has surrounded me with RCC neighbors and colleagues that have a sincere genuine LOVE for God. Like our own John Y, they LOVE God and I love them. They share a LOVE for Christ that often surpasses anything I see from SOME people that attend MY very own Church.

GOD puts HIS SPIRIT in people, not man made theological statements

Christopher, this is what I was trying to figure out with SteveR. Is there a point, being in a saved state by grace, that your surroundings become absolutely incompatible with the truths you are learning and as your faith matures. When I was in the SDA church, for quite some time I thought I could just be "a bad SDA" - staying but not practicing or believing their doctrines. After a while, it wore so hard on me it became obvious that there must be some absolute truths biblically and I was not living in them. Kind of like being in an adulterous relationship, realizing you can't be, cutting off the physical part but still maintaining a relationship; it just doesn't work. But I know how difficult it is to find that line and I think often-times it must be prompted by God, since we tend to turn back to what we are comfy in. You could get into the whole "Parable of the Sower" and begin to question which seed you really are...

I just don't understand the logic. I don't understand how Roman Catholics can be considered to be saved, brothers and sisters, Saints, etc. There are many fatal, heretical doctrines, but even adhering to just one of several keeps me wondering how there's any defense. Let me break it down with a couple of examples using just two of the false doctrines/practices out of the many they offer:
1) Praying to Mary and the "saints" To me, this is no different than praying to another god, etc...take your pick.
2) Observing the Mass which, aside from being an indulgence to reduce ones time in the non-existant Purgatory, it is, by Romes own words, a continual re-sacrifice of Christ on the cross because His death was not sufficient to forgive all future sin.

Examples like this are what keep me confused as to why people vehemently defend them. Examples like this are why I have such difficulty believing that they are saved.
Can I be saved while praying to the dead, asking them for things that only God can provide? Can I be saved while believing that Christ's death wasn't good enough and that He lied to us?

SteveR, if I follow your train of thought and apply this to the raising of our children, there is an enormously huge hole here. "Do not be deceived: 'Bad company corrupts good morals.', (1 Corinthians 15:33 HCSB). If the unbeliever has not welcomed God's spirit, but can have the appearance of good works ("And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:23 NKJV)), are we not commanded to "Stop judging according to outward appearances; rather judge according to righteous judgment.” (John 7:24 HCSB)? Not a single one of us may command a soul to Hell; however, since we are called to be in but not of, separate yet a light on a hill, there must be a way to reckon calling those who profess faith but do not actually posses it - otherwise will we not run the risk of corrupting good morals? It must be more than "just a relationship with Christ". Are there any absolutes by which we can measure whom we align ourselves?

Our job is more difficult than an Israelite warrior who knew their brethrn outwardly. The wicked have uncircumcized hearts, but how do we see those hearts? The Spirit does give some discernment in these matters, but as you say we shouldnt be too quick to judge.

1 Corinthians 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. .. 1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

1 Corinthians 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

1 Corinthians 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

Keep pressing him on this, and see where he goes.

This is the one thing which marks out the big irreconcilable difference between Protestants and Catholics, between the true and the false.

Okay, my confusion then, if we're talking apples and apples here, lies in looking at the fruit a person bears and determining whether they are part of the body of Christ. No one can say whether a person will sit in eternity with Christ simply because we are not Judge - we have control only of the Earthy vessel. But we are also charged with looking out for wolves and "little foxes". So how do you tell them apart from believers if they continue living in a state which is opposed to God's word? The SDA church does this. Denominations don't save you, but when you are married to Christ, your loyalties should be to that husband only - what if that church/denomination demands more? Whether you give it ear or not, wouldn't you be straddling the fence by continuing on within its doors?

Steve, I do not declare any saint unsaved. They are all saved, which is why they are called saints.

If a person isn't a saint, they are not saved.

SteveR, who does the justifying? Is this man's responsibility or the Holy Spirit's work? I believe that the process of Sanctification is on-going: "I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6). But didn't Christ justify those He chose when He died and rose again? Maybe we are talking about a different definition of justification?
Are we talking different things?

Im by the book Calvinist in this area

The sinner is spiritually dead, and cant come to saving faith by himself.

Your are too self confident in your foolishness & lack of Christian understanding.

Every walk of Christian faith has an idea of what the process of salvation is. For example, the Reformed Faith would have a guideline similar to:
Election
Regeneration
The Call
Justification
Sanctification
Glorification

By the way, your ignorance isnt the reason why I criticize you. I criticize you because you declare so many Saints unsaved despite that lack of understanding

Steve, the expression "process of salvation" is one which the RCC would use, simply because they regard salvation as a process rather than a definite thing accomplished.

If you think about it, you can see that such a "salvation" is not depending on the finished work of Jesus Christ alone, but something which you yourself accomplish, in other words a salvation by works.

Biblically, predestination results in calling, calling results in justification, and justification results in glorification. Every time - without exception.

Is that what you meant by "process"?

p.s. justification is not progressive, it is instant, and once you have it you are saved forever. Justified through faith alone in Christ alone.

SteveR, I agree completely! It's the "True Faith" you spoke of I'm wondering about. It seems as though, and I may be misunderstanding, that you hold the position that we can be saved and, while we continue to be sinners (we do and are) we can live in carnality, perhaps forever, while being in a saved state of grace?
I would hold to the process of salvation that declares one JUSTIFIED without the works of the Law. However, after justification, one of True Faith would be sanctified into the Holy Image of Christ by the Holy Ghost. As we know by Pauls example, its long a difficult process

Romans 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
